Nigel Mooney is widely regarded as Ireland's leading jazz singer and guitarist. A charismatic figure on the Dublin jazz and blues scenes since the early 1980's, his Gripewater Blues Band spearheaded the blues movement in Ireland and drew many fans of both jazz and the blues.
A self-taught musician, Mooney was influenced by the blues from an early age and his hard-bop style of guitar playing is expressive and melodic with a bluesy groove. He possesses a warm and rich tenor voice and has an almost flawless sense of pitch.
His first album, "All My Love's In Vain" (Rubyworks) was released in 2005 to critical acclaim and has become one of Ireland's highest selling albums by a jazz artist. The single, "Beautiful Day" charted on the Irish hit parade and still receives regular airplay.
This week, Joe Duffy from Liveline, gives us one of his all-time favourites..
A song I can never hear enough is Bridge Over Troubled Waters by Simon and Garfunkel. I particularly remember Art Garfunkel performing it in the Olympia in 2003, at the start of the Gulf War and he got a standing ovation before the song had ended. He had been on Liveline earlier that day talking about recent events in the Gulf.
That song takes on a meaning for every person who hears it, and in every new situation.
